Job Market Looking Up

As most of us are nearing graduation, or at least we hope so, we begin looking for a job, but what if there isn’t one available? According to MonsterTRAK, sixty percent of graduates head back home to live with their parents after graduation because of the lack of jobs available on the market. However, there is hope! An article in the New York Times entitled, Here Comes the Class of 2005. Can It Pay Rent? states that this year’s graduates face the best entry-level job market in more than three years, and lucky for us, business graduates have the best prospects, especially those majoring in fields like finance and marketing. So good luck to all of the graduating seniors and I hope you will be able to find a job that is rewarding to you.

I think 3 years is an understatement. I'd say best in 4 and possibly 5 years.

I think that is great that the job market is looking up. It's almost like a discouragement with you go to school for 4 years or longer and you cannot even find a job.

The experience that I have had job searching is that employers are looking to hire. However, they are looking to find the right person for the job.
